A fifth of the time of each nursing service is devoted to coordinating and organising care. Poor communication costs hospitals in the US around 12 billion dollars a year, which is equivalent to around 2% of worldwide hospital revenue. Many traditional nurse call systems offer static buttons that do not allow user mobility and that offer very limited options for communication and call management.
CareBuilder offers integrated systems that significantly improve communication and collaboration within hospitals and other healthcare institutions. CareBuilder helps healthcare organizations create complete solutions for:
Patient safety – Wide range of devices for personal alarms, home automation and e-Health, indoors or outdoors, in bed or in the shower. CareBuilder supports the latest digital solutions based on wi-fi, 4G / 5G and z-wave, in addition to traditional analog and DTMF devices from third parties.
Tranquil working environment – CareBuilder reduces noise pollution and the risk of ‘alarm fatigue’ to a minimum by filtering alerts and requests through clever allocation using differentiated triage, and by sending silent alarms to personnel.
Having complete overview and working intuitively – Because alerts and care requests from all kinds of monitoring and personal alarm devices are only received and handled through one app, caregivers do not have to use multiple beepers and systems to maintain a total overview.
Communication & Teamwork – The Caregiver App offers internal and external video / VoIP communication, patient information, notes from colleagues and user-friendly care administration. With the Caregiver App, staff are no longer on their own!
Safety for care personnel – In addition to the communication options that the Caregiver Ap offer, we provide mobile personnel with user-friendly personal alarm devices using Wi-Fi and 4G/5G that can be used everywhere.
Location Determination – CareBuilder’s nurse call system lets responders know in real time in which room and where on the map they are needed.
Efficient clinical workflows and care processes are made possible by CareBuilder’s real-time differentiated triage system, regardless of how complex or diverse your care and support services are, or how many different monitoring devices your organization uses.
